4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: students have many places to choose from, and mots places are good

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: They have a lo of options, but the quality can be questionable at times.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Its pretty good, but you kind if get tired of it by the end of the semester.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Being a vegetarian, I was not expecting to be able to eat much. However, I have learned that there is a decent amount of options and a good variety for vegetarians. Vegan may be harder or maybe even impossible to come by, but for a university I was pleasantly surprised with their vegetarian accommodations. Also, the food isn't bad either. I'd say it's at least one notch above traditional cafeteria food.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Much of the food on campus is not healthy but if you look around there are a few options. there are also a lot of vegetarian options but much of the food is made cheaply but the prices are high

Rowan University has a contract with Sodexo Food Services, which does a pretty good job. With nine different locations where students can go to eat, Rowan’s biggest strength when it comes to dining is its variety. The Marketplace, which is the main eating spot, has different stations to suit any needs—the buffet-style eatery features Asian, an American grill, and an Italian station where pizza is made fresh, not heated from frozen boxes. The food isn’t bad at any of the stations, and because there are so many different places to eat, the lines are never unbearable—that is, not until late when Prof’s Place is the only open eatery.

If it is 12:30 a.m. and you find yourself hungry after an exhausting night of studying, chances are you will go to Prof’s Place because it’s the only place open from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. During those times the lines are generally unbearable at Prof’s Place—no exaggerating. When the lines are backed up, it generally takes a good 20 to 30 minutes for a meal that is made to order. That being said, the dining staff are some of the best people on campus.
